Trace & Color Series

Are you better at painting than drawing? Do you need some guidance in laying out your work? These books from Walter Foster are an interesting blend of art instruction with various media and patterns for you to trace and color in as you wish. Each book begins with 14 pages showing you color wheels & combinations, followed by tips & techniques for colored pencils, oil & acrylic paints, watercolors, oil pastels, markers & pens. Then, you see the recommended color palettes with a finished product as an example. Each book includes 6 black-line patterns and 4 sheets of graphite paper. You place the graphite paper under the pattern to trace it onto whatever paper (or canvas or board) you choose to use. Each pattern is 8.5" x 12". While they have some detail, there is still plenty of room for your own style to come through. If you have a middle or high school art student, one of these books is a good way for them to try the various media and see if they like one in particular. They are really good for teaching color theory & simple techniques for creating a realistic finished product. Because you are tracing the patterns, you can use them again and again, maybe one in cool colors and one in warm tones. Or, play with the light & shadows, painting the same image several times like the Impressionists! 32pp, pb ~ Sara
